Weekly Roundup: Living Like Ben Franklin and Sleep Music
Each week, we find a few good reads to share with our readers. This week, we've got some great articles on wellness: living like Ben Franklin, meditation, and sleep music.
The Daily Life of Benjamin Franklin
Anisa Purbasari from Business Insider tries Benjamin Franklin's daily routine for a week, and she is surprised to find that the most difficult part to stick with is his daily time for reflection.
As far as daily routines of historical figures go, Benjamin Franklin's is well documented. The Founding Father's meticulous "scheme" consisted of waking up at 5 a.m. and asking himself, "What good shall I do this day?"
IS SLEEP MUSIC A REAL GENRE?
Ted Gioia from The Daily Beast writes about an emerging genre of music, in which composers are working with neurologists to create sleep music.
In recent months, I've encountered a surprising number of creative projects targeted at an unconscious audience. But this raises many questions: Is sleep music a real genre? If it is, what role should music critics play in this emerging field?
A SIMPLE GUIDE TO BLISSFUL LIVING
Kathryn Remati from Daily Cup of Yoga writes about the difference between mindfulness and meditation - and how the two work together to lower our stress levels.
We can start with two common myths. Mindfulness is NOT thinking really hard about something that sounds stressful. Meditation is NOT about shutting down the mind like an off switch that sounds boring. They are both tools to access inner peace, which is already inside of you.
